Rationale for Educational Blogging


Great blogging post by Anne Davis (suggested by Carla A.)

Four Weeks to a Flatter You

by Bob Sprankle

Comments by Carla: Some great resources within the article that could be used, like this video, "Blog if You Love Learning", some ideas in the video, I question, like saying that blogs are like webpages, among others, but it is a cool video for real beginners and neat tutorial (screencast) of edublogs! http://k12online.wm.edu/BlogIfYouLoveLearning.mov



These two articles were written in 2006, but I think they clearly show the impact of blogs in the context of the Web 2.0.
